We had heard so many wonderful things about WM before my 1st child was even in school, so when it was time, we moved into WM district, 7 years ago. It was the best decision we could have ever made. Now, we have 2 children that attend West Morgan Schools, one in 2nd Grade and the oldest is now in 7th.

My girls enjoy school, treat their friends, teachers and classmates with respect. My oldest was chosen for Nat Junior Honor Society and that tells me that my daughter's teachers must be doing something right! WM parents and teacher, in general, I think love this area. Everyone here has the WM SPIRIT! Read less

I couldn't have chosen a better school for my child to go to. My child is in the third grade now and continues to be doing very well academicly. My worse fear was that my child not have a teacher help him or interact with me and his dad on the problems that he faced, but I can honestly say that the

I also appreciate the fact that frequent updates about the school and educational oppertunities are always sent home in the newsletter. I can't think of another school that I would like my child to attend other than West Morgan. Thanks, Read less

I am relatively critical of West Morgan as a school, but the parent who claimed that the principal was not involved, the bathrooms are dirty, and lunches are horrible is way off base. Yes, West Morgan has quite a few teachers who are detrimental to the reputation of teachers everywhere, but the school
... Read more is very clean, the lunches are not only good, but offer a wide variety of foods to the students, and Mr. Kimbrell is the most involved, dedicated principal I have ever known. He was at nearly every softball game last year, and he even went to Montgomery to cheer the girls on at State Playoffs. He is at most if not all of the football games, and nearly every basketball game. The man single handedly painted the parking lot this year so the lines would be clear and the kids could have designated parking spaces. They don't come much better than that. My only complaint is that a couple of the teachers at West Morgan seem to delight in flunking students...and have even BRAGGED about it. And too many teachers are coaches who are not actually teaching, but rather simply assigning pages to be read and questions to be answered. That is not teaching. Of course then there are dedicated professionals like Mrs. Marquart, Mrs. French ( who sadly left West Morgan last year to become a reading specialist at Cedar Ridge), Mrs. Mac, and Mrs. Jarnagin who go way beyond the call of duty to teach our kids and prepare them for the future.
